Have you been struggling to get Word Work running in your classroom?
In my classroom Word Work was always hands-on for my students and I had them really focused on the spellings as well as the meanings of words.
Making time for word work is an essential aspect of Guided Reading because it helps patterns and words move into their long-term memory, instead of just memorizing the words. Word work can help our learners become better readers, spellers, as well as writers.
In my classroom Word Work is an approach to spelling instruction that really focuses on truly studying and understanding the words I was teaching my students.
My approach to word work in my classroom really reflected this.
I have used a variety of hands-on activities to help my students actively grow in their knowledge and understanding of their vocabulary words.
And throughout all of my years’ teaching, doing word work during small-group instruction was (and is) absolutely essential.
In todays video, I will be sharing with you three word work activities that I did for my emergent readers.
So if you’ve been curious about what actual activities I did for those readers on a level A, B or C, definitely check out this video!
